News & Opinion: Good Morning!
I'm so thrilled to be here among such leading minds and want to thank those at 800-CEO-Read for letting me host the blog today. Ive heard so many wonderful comments since the release of my book , Kiss Theory Good-bye and Im doubly thankful that so many in the marketing and business communities have featured my book.
Over the 25 years I spent helping companies achieve their financial and operating objectives, I noticed a lack of practical information to help business leaders execute their plans.
My whole goal of writing the book was to really give actionable steps that anyone could take to meet their real business challenges and achieve extraordinary results in leadership, sales effectiveness, operational excellence, financial management, and customer loyalty. People are tired of theory and want the how-to details that actually produce results. The results Im talking about are performance, productivity and profit.
The first question I ask anyone about their company is - What are your top three objectives and how do you know you are achieving them? Is everyone focused on achieving the organization's top objectives? I would love to hear your comments on both questions.
PS There is alot more at my website.
